With just a few clicks and ticks and you are done. There are a lot of online shops or what they call as “e-commerce business” where they are licensed to conduct the business through online.

Amazon is an online shop which produces a wide variety of products and services. It is considered as one of the top online selling stores in the world today.

You can find anything on Amazon, be it the most needed product for the most unnecessary product you can easily find. Amazon does not only sell their products but as well supporting other small businesses by letting them sell their products as well. Over the past years of Amazon reign, there have been many jobs offered to people who are lucky enough to have a stable career in the said company.  Amazon is a company made by builders and sellers and inventors. If you belong to one of those mentioned, then maybe you got the right skills for Amazon. This company is not a product-based company that does not have a high-quality standard but this company maintains a name that their products will sustain and last for years.

One of the challenges an online seller always does come across is the delivery method and time of delivery. This is not just some challenge you can always find a solution to. This is more of an undying problem. And it is not in the seller’s hands why the delivery is such a shame. The problem is that of the delivery agency. But do not always put hands on the agency because most of the time it is because of the weather. But here is the catch, regardless of the reason for the delivery delay, people will understand if the agency and the seller will always keep the buyer updated and that is why Amazon, as the world’s top seller have planned and come up with the solution which they named it as Amazon Key. Amazon Key is the newest concept of Amazon, it is a delivery service that will allow delivery people to enter your home and leave your requested packages.

It is very easy to install and use, but it is somehow a bit expensive, and there is some limitation wherein you need to know about. One example is that if you have a dog. Amazon Key is a usable service which combines two physical products, a smart lock wherein you can select one of three Amazon offers, prices ranging from $150 to $250 and the Cloud Cam Key Edition in-home camera.

Although it will all depend on the lock you choose, the Amazon Key bundle will range from $249 to $319 after a discount is applied during checkout. Yes, that is somehow very expensive but it is very useful especially if you are a trusted buyer in Amazon and you get anxious if your packages were being damaged outside or maybe if it has been stolen. It can be very easy to use.

You can just unlock the door if you use the Amazon key mobile application so you can have the people get access inside. And very simple and convenient for the delivery people to drop off your package. But this will only work if they are in the correct location with the correct package. If someone will start of the open the door, the camera inside will eventually start filming. Because of the rising incidences of stolen packages outside the homes after delivery, Amazon has found this solution quite a bit mesmerizing.

The installation is pretty much a piece of cake. If you opt to chose the high-end $250 Yale Assure Smart Lock Amazon Key Edition, it has a digital keypad that works if ever you do not have a smartphone or keys. It also has the aesthetics of a higher-end lock. It is much easier if you have already installed a lock but if you do not have one yet then the installation could probably take you for hours. Next thing you need to do is to plug in the Amazon Cloud Cam and download and open the Amazon Key app on your smartphone.

Amazon’s process is very simple: first, if you will have to connect the camera to your home wireless network and you need to enter the code on your lock keypad together with the two products to sync.

The Amazon Key app will let you have a quick sneak peek at your camera from your smartphone whenever you want.
It will also alert you if your door is unlocked or locked. Also, you can give access to the people who visit. You do not have to walk towards your door to open it, you can just lock or unlock it using your phone. On the other hand of those benefits, Amazon Key cannot deactivate your security system. You will need to turn the security system off on the day your package will arrive.

Amazon Key is a mesmerizing product, especially whenever you are just using the smart lock for personal use, it’s great, but you need to think about your security system and your dog. Whenever the delivery person will hear barks inside your home then you need to expect to see your package outside because it is safer for the driver and also to prevent a dog from running around the location. If you are most concerned about deliveries being safe and secure whenever you are not in the area, with Amazon Key installed, you will be able to have the packages in a safe place inside your home.
